Sustainability Aspects: Professor Prabhu Kandachar retires and gives a lecture on design for "the triple bottom line"

The Story

Designing with emerging market

Prabhu Kandachar has been, on and off, working at Delft Technical University for over 20 years. And 10 years at my old company Fokker Aircraft. Mainly at material developments but the last years developing design for the Bottom of the Piramid. If you are interested in this topic you will find his talk very interesting, start at slide 57 or so after the, very long, introduction.

I like the, free available, book Designing with Emerging Markets. Which has many background information on quality of life, and quantity of the problems and opportunities in the emerging markets. And many inspiring products like prostheses, cataract treatment, infrastructure solutions from the east.
